1000 guests attended the black tie occasion honouring Jonah who tragically passed away a year ago.
Ex England lock Martin Bayfield Mc’d, and was joined by Zinzan Brooke, Justin Marshall, Ali Williams, Anton Oliver, Jonny Wilkinson, Martin Johnson, Schalk Burger, Neil Back, Michael Lynagh and many other Rugby Legends.
I hosted a table for four Lancaster Royal Grammar School students, three teachers and Old Lancashian father and son Brian (ex England Coach) and Tony (ex England video analyst) Ashton. What a night.
Eddie Jones and Dylan Hartley took time off before their game vs Australia and spoke warmly about Jonah; a man who transcended Rugby, as Pelé did soccer, Michael Jordan did basketball, Wayne Gretsky did hockey, Mohammed Ali did boxing, and Tiger Woods did golf.
Bravo England. Bravo Rugby.
